The Treasury denied a newspaper report on Tuesday that the government had asked Bank of England Governor Mark Carney to stay on for an extra year beyond his scheduled departure in June 2019.
“We don’t recognise their reporting at all,” a Treasury spokeswoman said when asked about the article in the Evening Standard newspaper.
A diary item in the newspaper said the ministry had “quietly approached” Carney about staying another year to provide continuity as Britain leaves the European Union.
